The 12th Symposium of the International Diabetes Epidemiology Group is an Official Academic Satellite Symposium of the World Diabetes Congress 2011.
"Diabetes UK is excited about attending this year’s Congress to see how we can work together, as diabetes organisations, to tackle the rising tide of diabetes worldwide. As the new CEO of Diabetes UK, this will be my first opportunity to see the wider IDF community in action, and I look forward to the opportunity the Congress will bring to meet my fellow CEOs from associations around the world and to learn how they are tackling the challenges that we are all facing.
We are pleased to be supporting the Young Leaders in Diabetes Programme that is running concurrently with Congress and hope that our candidate, Alex Silverstein, will both learn from other young people and be able to share some of our experiences from the UK to help other associations.
With a diverse and wide ranging programme, we are sure that this year’s Congress will provide something for everyone, from basic science through education and care, to epidemiology and service delivery. But more than that, it gives a platform for the diabetes community to raise the profile of the condition and ensure that it is taken seriously by governments and health providers to ensure better care for all people living with diabetes."
